My concern is not for the other teams.
I know you want to fight me on this, and the thought of them missing playoffs is upsetting. But, you have to face facts that this terrible first third of the season has put them behind the 8-ball in a big way.
All I was giving you was the number generally needed in the Western Conference to make the 8th seed. History teaches us that that number, is at minimum, 46.
Again, I don't want them to miss the playoffs and I'm not predicting they will or won't make it, but the fact and possibility remain very strong that it could very well happen.
you're not answering my question.
You just said that you need close to 50 wins. So tell me what three teams from Denver, Minnesota, Portland. Utah and Dallas.
Which of those teams do you see going on a close to 50 game wins run??? Cause 3 would have to in order to keep us out of the playoffs by your math.
So, Denver is gonna do it? How about Minnesota? Or Portland that's just lost 2 straight? Or Utah? I'm sure Dallas you feel is going to bounce back perhaps?
Honestly since you're being critical about it and love to be the one to jump in and play devils advocate. I'm gonna challenge that.
What 3 of those 5 do you see realistically getting 50 wins or "close" as you put it? Which apparently only seals the 8th seed.
or is maybe perhaps there a bigger possibility that those teams won't and that our team may have the best chance at getting close?
If we're dealing with possibilities, tell me. Is it a bigger possibility that Minnesota, Portland, Utah and Denver are gonna go on HUGE runs to end this season and mas possibly 50 wins each along with possibly Dallas. And that the three of them will be so far ahead of us that we'll miss the playoffs. Or is it more likely those teams are going to falter like they have been as they are in a much worse situation than us currently, while we get better?
Do tell, What's the bigger possibility, since we're going by that
